hi
i need to make a wireless tv antenna..there is a hill in front of my house but theres also a road and train track in front of my house ( i can't run any cables from the antenna to the tv ) so if i can make some kind of wireless tv antenna to send the signal to my tv i can put a antenna on top of this hill and get all the local channels..any ideas??
thanks terry

What you are looking for is a TV repeater. However, there may be legal and licence restrictions regarding setting one up and its quite an overkill for one receiver :) :)
What might also work is something I have seen on my travels. The houses were down a deep valley and had no chance to fit tall enough antennas to receive TV. What they did was to erect a large reflector on the hill to bounce the signal down the valley. It was just a large flat metal panel on a frame, as big as a bill board, that was angled like a mirror to reflect the signal.

Would it possible to convert the signal from the antennae to light signal...maybe to a IR light or laser and aim it at a reciever on the house and decode to the TV?

Connect together two equal antenne, this configuration also can transmit the signal.
